If you have always liked the historic look of a chrome pony corral on a Ford Mustang, you will be very happy with the latest news. Ford has announced it is adding a new Pony Package for the 2018 Mustang that will add chrome detailing to the front end, including a chrome pony-in-corral badge on the grille.
This iconic design was used on the original Mustangs from the mid-1960s and has evolved over time. Ford designers started sketching out the Mustang logo in July 1962, and the first design, sketched by Phil Clark, included the red, white, and blue tri-bar design. The pony corral got its start with designer Gale Halderman who created a “cougar-in-corral” concept in September 1962. Finally, the Mustang II concept wore the first official pony-in-corral grille and made its public debut in October 1963.
Along with the grille design, the Pony Package will also include premium carpeted floor mats with embroidered pony logos, side stripes on lower body sides, a tri-bar pony badge on the rear decklid, 19-inch polished aluminum wheels, and bright beltline and window trim on fastback models.
If you would love to own a beautiful new Mustang with an iconic flair, the 2018 Ford Mustang will be coming to Gurley Motor Company in October.
